“You’ve got a Monster in those woods, That’s why I am here, I am here to kill it.”

Erica Slaughter

BOOM! Studios have a great line up of Comic Books ranging from Adventure Time up to WWE, but the Comic that has people talking right now is Something is killing the Children. Written by James Tynion IV, a well-known writer for his work in DC’s Batman Book Series and including another BOOM! Studios book “The Woods“. Today we’re going to be reviewing this newly released Horror Book that has already clinched the 4th Printing spot for the Publisher.

The beginning of the book began as your typical sleepover until it took a turn for the worse. James does a terrific job of getting the atmosphere of fear and terror in the beginning, it isn’t forced, nothing too trivial it gets right to the point. Another thing that works for this book is that it involves a small group of characters, some memorable, some that you want to punch (James’s Bully for example) but we get more of a chance to look at the world around them and what lurks in the woods.

Another thing that works well for the book is the artwork of an Artist named Werther Dell’Edera, Werther has done work for both DC and Marvel so fans already know of Werther’s sense of style, his pencil work does well of blending in with James’ Script, bringing it to life and the duo does not have the engagement of horror simply for shock value. One thing I can assure you is that this Comic does switch things up a lot, puts you on guard and makes the reader get on edge.
